When the clock strikes 12, the freaks come out. Startling and provocative, in the 1970s a new phenomenon began to emerge, as theaters began to play movies at midnight - weird and wild flicks that carved out a place all their own in the Hollywood pantheon. These late-night cult events offered films that were unlike anything else glimpsed on movie screens. "MIdnight Movies: From the Margin to the Mainstream" (2005) is Stuart Samuels' fascinating documentary, which explores six legendary midnight movies and their impact on movies as we know them today. Filled with clips, interviews and expert commentary Samuels' film explores John Water's trashy classic "Pink Flamingos" (1972); David Lynch's surreal take on fatherhood, "Eraserhead" (1977); JIm Sharman's transvestite sing-along musical, "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" (1975); Alejandro Jodorowsky's weird western "El Topo" (1970); and Perry Henzell's reggae lovers' favorite "The Harder They Come" (1972).
